Jars of Love vintage card with Cupcakes & Carousels

Ok, I just had to share one of my favorite cards from the Build Your Stash card class by mail!  Check out this fun Sending Love card featuring the Jars of Love stamp set! When I originally started designing the class, I had been planning on focusing on the Better Together stamp set – because it is a great sentiment set – as well as the Cupcakes & Carousels designer paper stack.  But when I pulled out this sunburst patterned paper from the pack, things just started going in a totally different direction.  And in the end, I felt the … Read More

When I saw the Happy Hearts embossing folder was on the Weekly Deals this week, I remembered I had been wanting to make a video tutorial for this fun background that is AWESOME with this folder.  Unfortunately, life got crazy and then I got sick this weekend, so it took until this morning for me to get it recorded and posted.  I also am experimenting with my video setup, so hopefully it all worked out ok.   But I really wanted to share this cool technique for double embossing your cards so you get the cool layered pattern for your … Read More

A Little Bit of Love with Seasonally Scattered

JenniferCards, Display Board Samples1 Comment

Wanna see the very first card I made of the convention display boards this year?  And the very first one I made with the new Seasonally Scattered?  Well, here you go! This card is pretty different from my usual style… in fact, I actually made it and then set it aside for a while to see if I liked it or not.  In the end, I decided I did like it and had fun with the mixture of patterns and textures! Tips for making this card: The sentiments from the Seasonally Scattered stamp set are pretty big and the letters … Read More

JenniferCards0 Comments

I hope you don’t mind one more Cross My Heart card sample.  I know, I’ve been using it a lot this week, but that is just because I went on a creating spree with the set and most of the cards I have photographed right now use it.  But hopefully by now you can see some fun ways to use it!  I have to admit, it was fun to take images from the same set and try to create totally different looking cards.  You should try it some time! Anyway, here is today’s card: So, this all started with me … Read More

Cross My Heart Faux Stitched Love Card

JenniferCards0 Comments

Do you have a stamp set that you loved…bought… and now have no idea what to do with it? Being a word puzzle person, I love these stamp sets that are word search/crossword designs.  I even bought the word search background stamp years ago.  But did I ever figure out how to use it?  Nope! Well, my mom got the new Cross My Heart stamp set and while I thought it was really cool, I had no idea how you would use it.  So, I stamped a few images and have been making myself play with it.  Turns out, it … Read More

Heart Pressed and Filled with Love

JenniferCards, Specials & Deals0 Comments

Today I thought I’d share with you one my first cards using the new Heart Pressed letterpress plate.  Most of the other letterpress dies are big, bold patterns that often are the focal point, so it was fun to play with a more subtle pattern. I used the Heart Pressed die as a textured patterned paper and wanted to let it provide a lot of the interest in the card.  Then I added a few, to me, vintage-y accents for a little extra flair. This is also another example of why the Filled With Love stamp set is such a … Read More

Glittery Filled with Love Card

JenniferCards0 Comments

Last night was another fun card night with the gals of my meetup group.  We made three cards and I thought I would share today one of the cards we did.  I knew I wanted to showcase the Filled with Love set and the Bitty Buttons you can get free with the bundle and so I started brainstorming ideas for a layout.  Then I saw a card created by Robin Merriman and thought it would be perfect to start from.  I changed it up a bit so that I could use the super fun new glimmer paper and add in … Read More

A little love with the Rough Type alphabet

JenniferBig Shot, Cards0 Comments

So, the May scrapbooking promotion was the kick in the pants I needed to commit to getting the rough type alphabet stamp set.  I loved the idea of a high quality clear mount alphabet but was initially on the fence.  Well, the incentive of free designer brads was enough for me to just go for it and boy am I glad I did!  Sure, it takes a little bit to label all of the stamps but once you do, it is so easy and fun to make all kinds of words.  In this case, I was playing and decided to … Read More
